Future Shoreditch

We're in the early stages of preparing an area action plan for Shoreditch, called Future Shoreditch. The plan will set out a vision for what Shoreditch will look like in 2033 and the planning policies to guide and manage future development and investment in the area. Once adopted, this plan will be an important document when making planning decisions in Shoreditch.


The consultation on the Future Shoreditch issues and options document closed on 28 February 2018.

Baseline report

Part A

Part B

We hosted two drop in sessions at the Shoreditch Opportunity Hub in February giving residents the opportunity to find out more and have their say on the future of Shoreditch.

Call for sites

As part of the consultation on the issues and options document we also undertook a call for sites, providing an opportunity for developers, land owners and other interested parties to put forward sites that they believe are suitable for development for homes, jobs or other uses.

What happens next?

Your comments will help shape the local planning response in the draft plan which will be consulted upon in spring this year.

Why are we producing Future Shoreditch?

Shoreditch has experienced phenomenal growth over the past 20 years and businesses and services continue to be drawn to the area along with new residents and visitors. This growth presents great opportunities as well as challenges, particularly as rents rise and the supply of affordable workspace struggles to match demand.

Future Shoreditch will help ensure that the pressure for new development does not erode the special qualities and character of Shoreditch that draw businesses, residents and visitors to the area in the first place.

Residential communities are an integral part of Shoreditch, yet some residents feel they're increasingly disadvantaged by the type, scale and pace of the changes facing the area - so future Shoreditch is not just about guiding the way the area physically grows, but also approaching regeneration in a way that creates a better quality of place and life for everyone.
